The new year started, and we already have booked dates to different courts: * yesterday we where in Hamburg, as we got an interim injunction to not sell Diablo 3 Gold, .. more about it below ... * on 27th May we are in Leipzig, the court hearing is about, if i am personally liable for the actions of the company, if there are any actions of the company that are agains the law * on 1st July we are in Munich, the court hearing is about, if any contract exists between blizzard and us that are all regional courts. On the already done rulings about Honorbuddy and Demonbuddy, we are still waiting for the regional appeal court of Hamburg to give us a date for the hearings, last year we where informed that this should be around Q1 2014. Yesterday, we finally got to the point where the court has to decide, if there is a contract between Blizzard and its customers, or not. The oppinion of the court was, that at the point of the purchase, no contracts except the purchase contract where concluded. They are not sure yet, how to decide about the contract that Blizzard wants to put between them and the end-user when creating the battle.net account. However the european court decided 2012 in a scimilar case UsedSoft vs Oracle (Intellectual Property Issues: usedSoft GmbH v. Oracle: Are You Exhausted Yet?). And when looking into Blizzard, it seems that either they sell a pointless DVD for 30 EUR and then you close a contract with them, to actually be able to play the game you just bought and wasted your money on, or you do buy a full game in the store with all the rights included, to play it and sell it and so on. Anyway, we will see how the court will decide, the ruling should be there until midmonth March.
